President Chavez calls for Cuba to be included in the upcoming Summit of the Americas

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez called for the inclusion of Cuba in the Fifth Summit of the Americas, and urged US President Barack Obama to lift his country's 47-year-old trade embargo on the communist nation.

"If we all are friends of Cuba, we cannot continue accepting impositions from the North American empire," said Chavez on Sunday during his weekly television and radio programme, Hello President.
